Student Assessment Ideas

Potential Assessment Tools:
  • Stop, Start, Continue: to determine what components should be kept within the instructions, as well as identifying aspects that were not as successful
  • 2 minute memo: to determine if the learning objectives have been met
  • Survey with a mixture of multiple choice and open ended questions: to gather feedback on instruction, instructor and classroom activities
  • Immediate feedback instrument: can be purchased and used in class.  The choices are covered with a removable material.  You get 3 points for picking the right answer with the first scratch, 2 points for the second try, 1 point for the third try and no points for the last square remaining.  You can use this instrument as a competition within the class - students working in teams try to get the most points in the shortest amount of time.  In the faculty orientation that I attended, one of the instructors used this instrument.  It was a lot of fun, even though my team lost!
